-Today marks the beginning of the Spring Contact period. From today, April 7th, to April 20th, coaches are able to communicate with recruits in person and via phone. The official explanation, courtesy of the NCAA website is:
During this time, a college coach may have in-person contact with you and/or your parents on or off the college's campus. The coach may also watch you play or visit your high school. You and your parents may visit a college campus and the coach may write and telephone you during this period.
Check back here throughout the Contact period for info on visits.
-The quarterfinals of the Donofrio Classic began last night in Conshohocken. The I-3 All Stars and Team Philly both advanced. I-3, who are led by Friends' Central stars Amile Jefferson and Devin Coleman, will take on the winner of tonight's Just Clean It vs Players Teaching Players contest. Team Philly, who got 42 points from senior guard Juan'ya Green, will take on the winner of tonight's Bucks County vs DeStefano's Electric game. Both of these games will take place next Wednesday, and I will be there for both. For more info, check out Ted Silary's site here.
-In New Jersey, huge news broke this afternoon when it was announced that Saint Patrick's head coach Kevin Boyle would be leaving the school and heading to Florida to coach at Montverde Academy. Both Saint Patrick's and Montverde have produced a number of high-level Division 1 recruits. At the moment, both the Saint Patrick's and Saint Benedict's jobs are open in North Jersey. Both are very appealing jobs on a national level.
